EVICWEfl: PAUL 

If y out VQ reader 

you'll FL J printed b 

Cholo players Guide beck in 
March. Well the game has now 
afrived, a g^ossKy slick pactcage 
set in a world ravagisd by 
nuclear holocaust. 

If you didn't see the guide — 
sh^rt^e on you -^ here's a brief 
run down of the game. 

FoJ lowing the nudear war, 
mankind has taken to living in 
bunkers, safe beneath t^e 
BCarred and tortured surface of 
the world. Generatiions have 
grown used to this 
aubterraoean world, afraid to 
leave their twilight existence 
and set fool on the surface. 8ut 
it is not the fear of radiation that 
keeps them cowed. 

Robots, aoifperpetuating, 
repairing themselves 3r\d acting 



CHOLO 



on their c)wn p^'progr^mmed 
artificial intelligence, have taken 
control of the surface, OrigirtaHy 
they were designed to repair, 
re-^build, protect their 
designated araa, making it 
eventually fit for recoionifstion. 

But the robots have turned 
rogue and ere keepirtg their 
hunnan charges trapped below, 
You , as one of t he r rapped 
people, spend you day listening 
to reports from the surface, It 
dewr^S on yonj that there could 
t>e a ch a nee of f reedom . 

Vou have control over one 
droid on the surface — known 
as RijTfo the RAT. Thj» can be 
used to transmit information 



and pictures from the syrface 
back to the operator. Using this 
robot it is possible to recruit 
others lo the freedom cause. 

Riifo is armed with a cannon. 
By repeetedly firing at other 
droids he can stun them. 

if he then bumps into the 
droid ii will enable you to 
access the droid's password. 
Enter the code correctly and il is 
possible to gain control over the 
robot, 

Gal ihii idea? By using the 
droids you can explore Choip 
City. The droids all have 
different skiffs and you'll Find 
these outlined in the players 
guide. 



The screen of Cholo is divided 
Into three — a screen showing 
"live" picturesfrofn the surface, 
another showing messege^to 
and from the droids etc 

The game comes with a 
novella lo read before you can 
get the most out of the game 
and an all-important map of the 
city. 

A lot of the game's fun rests 
on the exploration of the city. 
This I found quite a bso riling for 
e while. The vector giopNcs are 

Suite nice but I did find them a 
ttfe confusing at times. 
Personally I would have liked 
3 imie more action to spice up 
the game. Bui if you're in to 

Sames which can go on for 
ours, Choio coulo satisfy you. 
The only other gripe I have is 
that it's a little pricey.

Here it is, the game that's a bit 
like the arcade classic TigBr 
Heii, Although I'm not 
Supposed to say that. 

Tiget tiAission is a shoofem 
up in the scrolling tandsc;ape 
way. You know the sort of thing 
that 1 mean, very average. 

Yes, this tiger He^'lpokalike, 
this arnarmg game that Press 
releases go on and on aboui, is 
just run of the mdl stuff, Maytie 
it's nehivs in Denmark, but over 
here it's no big deal. 

Anyway, the game scrolls^ aa 
I aaid. a landscape undi^rneaih a 
chopper, which is let loose into 
your hands. You must destroy 
variaus on coming enemies. 
and coH&ct lots of points. 

As you start your anack run 
On tevol on?, you 9r« in lor s 
reat shock. 

The game puis you straighi 
into combat with those 



deadtiest of enemies, floating 
squares. 

Yos. you must guide your 
way through the on coming 
terror, hoping that these <iircraft 
arenolcaffv'r»H the latest heat 
seeking triangles. Well I aslt 
you. Squares! 

Next come the less menacing 
tanks, which blast without 
accuracy, but slijl get you all the 
same. Shooting these tanks 
looks easy, but when you play, 
you'll discover the truth. 

For in their ultimate wisdom, 
Keie Line have programmed the 
chopper to go at a snail's pace, 
which mean^you can't alway;! 
gel away from missiles. 

Oh, by the way, Mi^^iles is 
spelt incorrectly in iheganve, 
shows bad workmanship docs 
that, 

Your chopper can be made to 
}o faster by collecting a lurbo. 
iiut I didn't find any whilst 
playing, however i did find long 
range fnissile^whtch destroy 
enemies normaliy, I say this 
because otherwise you are 



rather limited range wise. 

While this "Action Packed' 
thrill is taking place (Laugh} you 
gel to listen to the music, which 
IS The best part of the game. It's 
a haunting piece, and very well 
arranged. 

Unfortunately the other tunes 
featured in tbe game aren't that 
bot! 

As you carry out your attack 
fufv, you have the ability to 
release one bomb onto the 
nasty people shooting at you. 
This IS rather like a 'Smart' in 
Defender, as n will take out all 
enemies on sfreen. 

When you gel shot down, you 
willnoticearatherannoyingi 
featureaboutthegame. which 
C^Ould have been avoided. After 
dying you have to go a) I the way 
back to the start of the level no 
metier how far you've got, SiUy 
eh7 

ShouJd you get to the end of 
the level you will see a helipad 
on which you must tand, Tbig is 
done by positioning your craft 
over it and pressing fire And 



then it's on to the next level. 

This level is tougher than the 
previous one, and has a lot 
more tanks at the start, making 
It very difficult to gel very far. 
Should you make it past the 
seventh setofiatiha, consider 
yourself briWIenL 

The graph ics a re v ery si mple., 
nothing toelatMrate. I suppose 
it's so thai It can be converted to 
other machines easier, {ie. ZX81 
and Jupiter Ace} 

Gameplay wise the game is a 
dead ringer for a lot otpames 
which have hit the marfcet 
recently, and there are far t>etier 
versi ens of th is t heme 
available. 

On the whote good, but 
nothing fantastic A bit like 
Vikings really. 

But so far Danish software 
hasn't been that excihng —

that fifsi appeared on the oov«r 
of C 4- VG last August hai finally 
crept out mto the big wide 
world. Quite what the 
prog rarnm era have been up to 
ti nee C -I- VO sftw t hat atm O^St 
completed preview copy last 
V»sr i» anyone's guess. Bui has 
Cyborg been worth the wait? 
The answer is— sort of , . . 

I reciion that if the game had 
been around and about last 
year when ii should have first 
appeared Cylwrg would' ve 
tieen pretty hot. But time has 
marched on . . . 
, Afiywsv> on with tKe plot. 

Cvborg is a man rrvachine with 
cybernetic arms, legs and 
weaportt. He's • sort of one 
man A-Team who ^ets all the 
jobs r>o-one else will do. 

This time he has bean sent off 



the screen i» • dis^play of 
Cyborg^B wri^i compuier parcel. 
Usino the iovKtick you saleci the 
various controU options. Any 
relevant information app«ai« 
on the \tfh hand computer 
screen. 

The main grsphic play era* 
looku a bit like Ocean's (ste 
janvefited V9ame. But don't 
dispair, Cyborg is a whole lot 
more playable. Control ofilions 
ir>ctude: 

K/T; This command enables 
Cyborg t o put dovvn any object 
that he is carrying. 

NOLO: Use to pause gafTie. 
You will be a&ked if you wish to 
toad, save or continue a game. 

INV: When you want to see 
wh at you are carryi ng use of 
this command will first show 
you what you are holding and 
then list what you ire carrying. 
By moving the cursor on the 
second list and hitting the fire 
tjutton on the selected item the 
object you are holding will bo 
SKdiingsd by it. 



CHAflACTER ANALYSIS; Thi* 
is a filing systam us-od to store 
information on IHe fornrts and 
robot types, 

HE'LOAD: If Cy^rg has ruft 
out of ammunftion or the power 
pack thai he has been using for 
his weapon is running low it is 
possible to re-toad. 

SCAfSf»JEFl: This allows you to 
view the imm'odiate Area from 
above. 

EXAMINE: This allows you to 
tak^a closer look at any object. 
Otvv loijs uses would be

STATUS: Gives your Shield

percentage. Shield wIlF drop 
and then regenofate. The power 
nnn will only be darriaged whan 

t;h;eldisatO%.TheP.U. 
. . .s not regenerate. So when 
this reaches 0% Cyborg is deed. 
GET; This commsnaenabtes 
the Cyborg to pick objects up. 
That's all the help you get from 
the instructions. Vou're left to 
your own devices. Foitunately 
we've managed to gel hold or 
these top secret hinu to help 
the first time piayef . 

• Examine as much ea 
possible, 

0Tha codas for each level are 
found in the computer 
terminals on the ptevioyi level. 
The code for the tirit level is 
found in the terminal within the 
scientist's spacecrafi. 

• The object or weapon that 
you are holding (not carrying) is 
the weapon/object that you will 
be using. 

• It is impossible to re-tosd 
your side-arm due !0 
mcompatability problems 
between alien snd fiuman 
designs. Aiiy weapon found on 
the spacecraft however may be 
re-loadM. This i« done by 

wa Iki ng u p to a power po Im, 
which can only be found in 
ro^ms, and presamg "Re- toad". 
You can only re-lead the 
weapon that you are holding, 
not any that you may be 
carrying. 

• As wfth an adventure you 
would be well advised to make 
a map 



# Experiment wtth door detects 
(examining and entering} and 
soon vt9u will be able to hit the 
detect on the first attempt. 

# Wh«r> hacking into a 
computer terminal, by typing 
"DIH"you will get adirocforyof 
files stored in the ternninal. 

# Avoid Alien fire by moving up 
and down as you run along the 
COrridorS- 

# Avoid the cleaner at all costs. 
The dearer is used to dean up 
any debris or general garbage 
left in the corridors, The cleaner 
sucitS in any animate object in 
iva path. If you come into 
contecT with it you w<ll 
immediately by destroyed. To 
avoid it you may retreat into s 
doorway, outrun the cleaner so 
that he leaves the screen or 
finally run !o the end of a 
corridor where the cleaner will 
turn round. 

# To use Character Analviis 
you mustflrstkJIlan Alien, then 
stand over the body and enter 
the contro I pa nel an d go to 
"Character Analysis". '"DATA 
STORED" will appear in the 
VDU- Then you are given a 

di rectory of th e a liens that you 
have stored. 

Move the cursor to the ellen 
type ¥00 wish to analytw and 
press fire. 

Cyborg features some nice 
ideas and is reaaortabty 
playable. The graphics are good 
and there's enough to keep 
your interest until you've solved 
the mystarV. But I doubt >f you'll 
be rushing beck to have another 
crack once you've solved It. 

CRL could have been a bit 
more forthcoming with the 
instructions. 

Without the tips we've 
printed here first tfme players 
will siruggte to gel into the 
game. 

If you enjoy tfTjpossibie 
Mission style games then you'd 
enjoy Cyborg. Worth checJ^ing 
out before you sheH out your 
pennies though.

P'g TrQubt^ vta^ ^ reelly neat 
rr-iovie. 8ut once aoain the 
dreaded cur$e of the movie 
spin-off has struck. Big Trouttiff 
has a re^&onably ^ood game 
idea, pretty graphics and nice 
sound — but it all gets let dovw 
by tt>e tedious garneplay . 

You get throe characters to 
coTitroTEach has different 
abl^Hiee and each is brought 
mto Mtion for otifferent parts of 
the game. 

If vOu'Ve seen the film then 
yotj'H know the baste plot which 
it « simple save the girl troffi 
the evJL onent^al mattermlnd 
adventure. And that's just what 
the plot of the game is. 

Vbu can control the heroes — 
Jack Burton. Wang-Chi and Egg 
Shen on their quest to save 
their girlfriends from the 
vilfBfnoue Lo Pan, 

Jack is armed with hia fists 
end, when he f tnds H, a gun. 
Wang Chi ie a mariJel arts ace 
who sometimes gets to uaei a 
twortland Eijg Snen it a wijterd 
who fights with mystical energy 
bolt*. 

tnitiilly Jack is able to defend 
himtiitr onl y With h it fist s. 
Howes/'er if you can penetrete 
tar ettough into the Mandarin's 
empire yoLn^ ill find a 
Bushmsstet gun whi(-h you 
may use. There is only a Hmiled 
of emmunitioni though 



more mev be found iytng 
around. 

Wang Chi is gifted with a 
knowledge of tne mania! arts, in 
addition to this a sword wili 
evontuallytie found. Sworda 
have a comparatively short life 
end will eveniua.lly break, More 
swords may be found during 
play and if picked up M^ill 
prolorig the life of the sword 
you ere carrying if you al reedy 
nave one. 

At the beginning of the gtmi 
Egg Shert use« magic bolts 
WTiich he tan fire from his 
fmiqer*, those only heve a very 
liitiitedrer^ge. Eventually a 
magic potion in a bottle will be 
found which will enable him to 
use stronger magic. Me wilt now 
have control over lightning 
bolts which will have 
dfiv a stating effects on the 



toughest of opponents. 

This strong rrvegic may be 
topped up byfinc^n^ addaionel 
bottle* of magic pot'on. 

The game has four levels. 
Level one : The Streets ol 
Chinatown. Here your three 
heroes will encounter unarrrted 
martial arts axperts- end 
gunmen. You will ha ve to 
retreat -~ you cen't defeat the 
gunmen until you have gained 
more experience. Warriors and 
other henchmen will not allow

As you may have gtiossed.

A game from Mike Singleton is 
always an cvoni. And we've 
be&n wailmg (or some lime to 
sflfl anything new from the 
Doomr^grir man, despite lots of 
rumours, sd Thr^ns af fir 6 ts 
bound to creaiQ some mter&sl- 

Thf one isn't quite an 
idveniure, it isn't quite an 
Arcade advent uro. it isn't quits a 
waraamtt — but it IS a 
combination ot all three. 

Hq% a game for those of you 
Mho demand instant 
oratificstjon ^ but a challenge 
fo r g a m este rs wh a en|av 
thinldngwith iheir action. 

ThfQnm of fire i^ set wilhin 
the 6umina Citadel V(hctr« three 
lifinces bid to SAi/e the thrdn^. 
and with it ultimate povwer. The 
three princes are AJorn the Lion 
Prtnce — a goodie, Cordf m the 
Sun Prince, another goodie and 
Karafl the Wolf Prmce — a biich 
hearted bsddio. ducss who is 
going to be the one everyone 
will piay? 

Ydu can play alone against 
two computer controlled 
princes or with a fnend nnd tha 
camputar. T hi $ is the best way 
to play as you can gang up on 
the computer pnnco and fmish 
him off bhefore fightirtg it out 
human to human' 

The com pule r opponent is a 
tough CHSOkie and will beat yitu 
nine times oul of ten. So 
t>eware of early frystraiions. 

The screen display — a bit like 
Ott&iv0tors (s split screen, The 
activities of the princes are 
shown in two large Windows 
whhip below there's a plan view 
of the citadel. 

The mam display screen area 
depicts the actions pf the 
character who is currently 
under direct controlr as He 
travles fram room to room or i$ 
engaged m combat 

Each room is shown in 
perspective, and doors on the 
left ^nd right lead directly 1o 
other rooms on the same level. 
Doors at the back lead to 
stairways ascending or 
descending to olher levels. 

The^'CroTling Citadel display 
at ihe bottom of each player's 
screen area depicts the inner 
waM of the Citadel 

The wi^ndows of all occupied 




to TM£M on-j jflriEMs to iMien ^a jairtms 



THRONE 





rooms are lit m different 
colours, according to ihc 
allegiance of the occupant. 

It a window flickers between 
two colours, there sra two 
membersofopposingforcestn 
that room, who may be enaged 
in combat, 

The colours are; Prince AJorn 
and his men-at-arms — red. 
Prince Cordrin and his men-at- 
arnr>s — yellow. Prince Xarak 
an^ his men-at-arms — purple. 
The men of the King's Guard — 
green. 

The scrolling screen gives 
essential tnformaiion about the 
cfeployment of all forces, but it 
dc<« not reveal the structure Of 
the Citadel, the connecting 
stairways, nor the Contents of 
tha rooms. These can only be 
drscovered by eKploration, 

At the start of play, there are 
ten men under the control of 
each player^ » prince, and 
nine man-at-arms. Ounng play, 
however, the number of men- 
at<arms will varygreatty, as 
some are killed, and 
reinforcemer>ts arrive. 

Characters who are not 
currently under the player's 
direct control carinot mdve 
from room to room of their own 
accord, but they will defertd 
themselves it attacked. 

However, they will not be 



able to ligni very well. To get 
the bes! from his men, a player 
should, whenever possible, 
directly control them in com bat 
mode. 

Within the Citadel dre a 
number of Gate Rooms, These 
rooms have only two doOrs, 
one which leads into the 
Citadel, and one which leads to 
the outside world which cannot 
be used by any of the players. 

From timeto time new men- 
at-arms, will Enter Gate Rooms 
from the outside. 

They will only enter empty 
rooms, and ihey will join the 
side of the last player io h^ve 
visited that room. 

If tha room has yet to be 
visited by any player, then the 
new men will instead goin (he 
ranks of the King's Guard, 

So as you'll have already 
guessed it's important to map 
the position of these gate 
rooms . 

The Throne room is the 
;e obiei 
si/ethe 
must visit the Thro ne Roorti 
with his prince, and his visit 
must be unoppQsed. No other 
characters belonging to the 
other piayers or to the King's 
Guard can be m the room. 

0^^ paining the Throne, that 
prince liecomes King, and in 



ultimate obiedive. 
To sci/e the throne, a player 



eddition to hts mfln-ai-arms, 
now takes control of the King's 
Guard 

At the same time, the other 
players lose the ability to 
directly control their men-at- 
arms, who now stay rooted to 
the spot, seeking ori'ly to defend 
themselves against attack 

Should the new Kmg die, the 
King's Guard becomes neutral 
once again, and the surviving 
players regein control of their 
men-at-arms. They can now 
once more attempt to sei» ihe 
Throne 

Die and your screen gets 
smeared with a taistefuT splurt of 
blood Nicer 

Thronf! of Firo won't tje to 
everyones tasle — but <f you'v* 
got the time and an inclination 
toward strategy games you'll 
find it an absorbing challenge. 

One word of warning. Don't 
be put off by early failures — as 
I've already said the computer 
is a tough oppenent. Be 
prepared to suffer early 
fruilralions untH you get to 
grips with the game.

Wow I WelLatJeast that's what I 
thought, WiT>ter Games Tnaiie 
Its 16'bn debut on thp ST some 
months ago, and now it's the 
Amiga's turn. 

As with the C64 version, the 
first taste of the games is the 
opijning cerijmonie'S The scene 
is hew a archway mstead of the 
old ■sle'PS. and ihe larch bowf is 
much widaf , A female funner 
legs it on screirn and Hights iho

ct^oosing a flag, ttieir national

player two enters his name etc.

fireorvthejoysiickandup loads 
the first event, 

Ye«H I did »av loads'. I don't 



know why the whole game (sri'l 
in memorv. 

The events, in t+ie eorreci 
Order, are: 

• Kotdog : You must perform 
bresfht^king, ^^tr^mely difficult 
aon^ersa Lilts, while flying 
through theeir. 

Although it's very easy to

often to lake potshots at 
unfortunate targets, The 
backdrop for this event \s drawn 
very well, considerably better 
than th« €4, The screen aiso 
scrolls, unlike the other 
versions which 'flick", 

• Speed Skating: In this event 
a player may face against the

precise liming, a player can

compared with the original. 
The femaleskster now tias an 
hour-glass fiqure instead of the 
or TTiatchs^ticK body, and she 
even has orange undies on. Pity 
she hasn't got a face though ' 

The ice has been altered also, 
end now has a {::olourful mist 
over it. making it more reatistiC- 
Tbe only gripe with this event is 
Ihe music, which has a large 
dose of Amiga 'click' f 
9 Ski Jump: Mere you get 
shaved of s icev remp, to see 
how far you will go. Quite & 
difficult event at first, but you 
soon get the hang of it, 

• Free StY'e Skating: This is 
the same as Figure Skating, but 
il ffes terrific music Just listen 
to \hp. viQlin3.et the end. 

# Bobsled: This event is the 
lest, and quite frankly there is 
no difference between thi^and 
the &4. And it's iust as much

So, the general verdict is that 
the graphics are better than the

sequel to Urdium A proud 
boAst but one which is, 
unfortunately, not really 
justified. 

The mam similarity I found 
was the sound. Eagles borro-wv* 
8 lot of the sound ebects which 
were £0 brilliantly used on 
Uridium. But great sound won't 
com penmate for the game play.

littJe confusing. 

The game is set in the year 
2048, War has been ragirig for 
three hundred years. 

Nuclear w<?apons have been 
outlawed bui conflicts go on — 
using genehciiMy creaied 
beings. Single-minded, they 
just destroy anything and 
everything that moves. 

The bSurti then goes on to 
mention about alien hordes 
with whom the "hero" Eagle 
pilots must do battle, 

I suppose these "genetically 
created beings" must be the 
aliens. Still the plot is hardly the 
most important thing about 
ahoDi'em ups. 

This-left-and right scrolling 
shool-em-up is set over eight 
levels where you must fapihe 
aliens, collect androids and 
drop thorn into a chuie On the 
pfanel's surface for extra 
energy points,

in the one player option you 
must ^ap the alien hordes and 
can follow the action in the top 
screen. The computer controis 
the rival gagle in tt^e bottom 
screen and you must beat him

to the enemy droids. Once 
you've collected one — the 
eagie flashes wtien it is on 
board — you have to fly iow 
over the planets surfece until 
you pass over the chute. The 
droid automeiicelly goes down, 

When the screen is clear you 
then lake on the Zeta fighter. 
Win end you get extra points. 

The Zeta fighter in the game I 
played will, I understand, be 
slightly refined before it goes

on each other in a head-to- 
head. Asa team you aha re the 
points. In the head-to -head it's a 
race to seo wh gets 1 he most 
droids. When the levels are 
cleared you must take on each 
other. 

Eagtes is from the mind of 
Danish programmer^ Per 
Madsen and Bo f^ielsen. It's 
graphically good to look at — 
although I must admit i cton't 
like playing games with split 
screens because I always find 
myself looking at the wrong one 
— ^ but It just doesn't really have 
enough eKcitement to place it in 
the top league of shoot-emup*. 

The Ea^le fighter is also very 
sluggish it's movements. You 
have to slow down before 
meking a turn. 

This can be especiaify 
annoying in two player mode 
when I W05 frantically trying to 
e.scApe ff om being blitzed (roin

In the 'ourih mission you must

The layout of thfl lort'cw i» 
completely different in each of 
the versions because the

sq' leeie everv drop out of each

Thus the C64 and Amstrtd

Spectrum owrters have eigtrt

Lifts should 
be used with

discrctrgn 
because, not only is 
ihere only one pflsi

painstakmgily unlocked will 
be locked agam if you returrt

rescuing ihe captives you must 
first find each one and lead 
them, one at fi time, t>ack to the

Understandably, your

Atthough there k% a small 
chance you may experience

two levefs, either as a mindless

ERCOOE MASTERS 
> VERStOMTESTfO-AMSTIUO 
^nEVIEWEH: 

The advent of a new snooker 
game is hardly a rarity, so it was 
with linle more then a yawrv that 
I dulifuhy loaded up Code 
Master's latest addition to the 
genre, entitled Pfofsssiottai 
Snooker Simulator iPSS\. But it 
just shows how wrong you can 



r>e, because PS5 is, quite 
Frankly, superb. 

The game is designed for two 
players, although handling both 
players' shots yourself can b« 
equally enjoyable. All the main 
rules of snooker are catered for 
including touchirtg bafland 
asking your opponent to ptay 
agairt. 

By clever use of The 
Amsuad'S higher resolution 
four colour mode, progammer 
Godwin Graham has Deer^sble 
to give us perfectly round balls 
rolling smoothly over the green 





baize. The four colours used by 
the program are green, red. 
black, and while, and with these 
all eight differently coloured 
balls are cleariy dtBoemabls. 

The screen is dominated by 
the pi en view of the table, 
Above thts are a message 
window and a magnified view 
of the cue ball. The window 
provides a oominefiiarv on the 
game telting the player &uch 
Things as when a foul has 
occurred or when there's a 
touching ball. The window will 
aisopromptths^playertomake 
specific decisions, such qs 
naminaiing a colour atter e r«d 
has been potted. 

The graphic of the cue ball is 
used to set any spin you want to 
put on any particular shot. This 
IS done by moving a black spot 
around the cue ball graphic. 
Thus, for example, if you 
wartted to put a deep screw on 
f he cue bal F f so thai it comes 
back towards you after the shoit 
you would position the spot 
towards the bonom of the ball 

Botow the table are displaye<l 
both players' scores and the 
current break value. To the right 
are repeat graphics of some of 
the coloured balls, each 
labetlfld to avoid any confusion, 
when nominating a colour 
during the game.

After Hepton. It's difficult to see 
where maze games can go — 
and there have been three 
Reptonsi 

According to the blurb, Xorss 
an atterrupT at e "totally new 
co^icept " in ma2es, although I 
heve to say the game itself 
doesn't bowl me over with its 
oripinaliity. 

Suppliers ere far too fond of 
saying things like that. A game 
doesn't have to be mind- 
biowingly different to be 
enjoyable.

Sphere o- ^■: -: , .. that rarity 
among computer games — 
something a little different. 

You control the character of 
Bruce the Bali, who is bouncing 
along the inter-stanon freeway 
to meet his lover ihfs lover? 
Freda the Friebee, perhaps?), 

6ut this freeway is no 
ordinary freewey. It's a multi- 
coloured, with frequent black 
holes for Bruce total) down, 
and made up of squares which 
have different tiiaractaristics, 
according lotheircolour. Do 
not at tern pi to pidy this on a 
monochrome screen ' 

For example, green squares 
give you ^n extra bgost of 
speed, while red squares stow 
you dowo. 

"Vou can move Bruce righi 
and teft, bounce him. and you 
can also slow down and speed 
up. The road ;oomsai you out 
of the screen, af>d. when you 
lean on the go-fasier key the 
road scrofts v&iy fast indeed. 
Quite exhilarating, in fact 

It's not an easy game to 
master, although you can 
achieve a reasonably high score 
by not having a due what 
you're doing, ^s I discovered 
the first few times i played. 
■What with trying 10 dodge black 
holes II never did work Oivit 
howl, bounce in the right 
places, avoid ths wrong 
squares, all the linae going as 
fast a& you dare, this is what I 
would call a challenge. 

Altogether, this is a siick, 
polishfld and off-beat game.

not $e«n the film, because at the 
time of writing this review, the 
film Short Circuit hasn't made 
it's way up to the darltest 
corners of Unit 4 in Accf ingion. 
(arte if the manager's reading 
this, tiow about letting me in 
free when it does?>, I Can't 
comment on how close the plot 
of the game follows the film. I 
can't even ssy definiilv if the 
game remotely fesembl^^ the 
filrm in any respect, but agoing 
off ifre clrps i have seen, f 
assume it does. 

Number Siss robot. After a 
freak million lo one chance, he 
was strucks by lightening, and 
N-umber 5 became concioys, 
Now there are three people 
after you. The scientist wha 
created you. who wants lo take 
you apart and see what has 
happened. The President of 
Nova Robotics wants to capture 
yOu and remove your weapons 
before you kill millions of 
i n noce nt peep I e . And 1 he Ch i ef 
of security, quite simply wants 
to blow you up, You are alive, 
and the aime of the game, is to 
stay that way? 

The game is devided into the 
sections. The first is a forced 30 
perspective, arcade adventure, 
m which you must s&arch the 
Nova factory to find various 
mechanisms to boll on to 
yourself, find the manual 
entitled 'How To Build ¥( 
Own fMumber &', andi 
before anyone realf^tfseu are

Time has proved them rig tit 
with liie original D&D concept

Now you can become a

A role-playing game is like a

So what do liguhnes have to 
do with this world of the 
fmiginilion? AlthouQh itie 
gtmof do lake place in the 
inind, some referees began to 
uu marters la represent ttie

relation to each ether.

combat sMuatioris.slnee it 
rielermrned jusi who could see 
who, or it the Dragon could rip 
the dumb barbarian In hall or 
was he posslbty Just Qui of 
range? 

Althougli all that was ne«ted 
were simple marfcen. Ihese 
were not vtrf attractive, and 
same people began maiifni; 
modi Is of thejir favouriia 
characters. 

Tliese proved so poputar that 
protessional toy soldier makers 
began taking an Interest, and 
applying their talents to this new 
tntt. Hie lantasy miniatufe 
nfttfe business was Oom. 

AiiiiQU|h Ihefe iiad been a 
huge wave ot inlerest in 
figurines there had onfy been 
tporadle attempts fa explain 
what to do with them. A lot o1 
people were drawn into the 
hobby simply thrauQh the 
miniatures Ihemselves. since 
they were very CO tied able and 
ailradive. 



Arflfts had meanwtiile 
discovereif that figures wei 
another medium in wbic h lo 
exercise their talents anii the 
results, If wel^ done, touitf b£ 
aslounttlng. 

Gradually, Ifia magazines 
responded lo this interest and 
begaf) runnino Features which 
incfuded full colour phofographi 
and. [mpdrtantty. guidelines as 
to how the complete beginner 
cfluld learn to use the painting 
and modelling techi^iques 
demonstrated. 

A basic figure is generally 
twenty live millimetres hi{|h. 
The scutptor o( the figure worts 
tnm a cancept sketch, so the 
idea at what he Is trying to 
produce is fixed firmly ii^ his 
mind. Then a wire skeieton Is 
made and the bulk of tfie model 
is buitt up using a cearse putty 
Once this rs dry. a finer putty is 
used to add tine detail . The 
sculptor emptoyt a wide range 
of Instruments, (rom pencil lips 
to dentists' foals to create 
various eitecls. 

What surprises ihe outsider is 
that the sculptors wor^ In the 
same scale as the finished 
modeJ. 

i[>nce the master figure Is 
completed ll is used to create 
rubber moulds it one mistake is 
made I hen the likeness of that 
particular model is tost forever. 

The figure is cast and silling 
there in front oF you. What next? 
Once cieaned of unwanied bits 
of metal, it may be painted, 

There is a huge variety of 




potiibte types of i>t tot to us e , 
from artists oils through inks to 
acrylics. 

Each has different properties 
and may give differen) and 
unittue effects, but it is a sale 
bet for a beginner to use acrylic 
paints since they are water 
based, do not smeir, ijrv quickty 
an If give nice, h right cof ours 
while stilt being easy to mix, 

As long as a potential painter 
has a good set of brushes, an 
adequate set of paints and 
sufficient time, then ibere is m 
reason why they cannot produce 
wort of the quality shown in my 
book As in evBrythlng else in 
life, the itey to good results is 
time, practice and eftorl. 

Johi Blanche is otie al the top 
figure painters in the country, 
and worts as Art Editor for 
Citadel Miniatures This 
company fs one of the oldest in 
the business aniJ is now Iba 
largest fantasy ligu re producer 
n the wofliJ— they usuafty have

tinti, limply making master 
minlilifrsi. 

Several of John's figures were 
used to illustrate this article 

Figure painting is a rewarding 
hobby It takes time, but the 
final product is very attractive, 
and certainly CQliectabie. Any 
ptrsan wishing to try, even if it 
be siimpEy to use figurines lO 
rale-playing games should 
certainly give it a go. 

It is actually fust as. if not 
more, enjoyable playing with a 
group of people than versus a 
computer. You certainly end up 
faughlng more, and bouncing 
ideas off of each other. 

And of course , il you want to 
paini figures, there is this 
absolutely amazing t»ook that 
you can buy lo help you. . .

Since Jack Trami el 
purchased Atari from 
Warner Bros, a couple of 
years ago. there has been a 
dramatic turnaround in the 
company's fortunes from 
an ailir)}; and unwteidly 
computer has-been to a 
tightly run and profitable 
organisation, once again 
turning industry heads! 

A combination of cheap, 
powerful computers 
aggressively marketed, 
has servied to put Atari 
well and truly back on the 
world map. Qn the 
domestic front, since the 
arrival of Bob Gleadow to 
the number one stot. there 
has been a shift in 
emphasis towards an ST 
range for home and 
entertainment u»e as well 
as for more serious 
business applications. 

The very fact that you're 
reading an article whkh 
forms part of C VG's Atari 
Special is tangible proof 
tliat developers of 
entertainment software 
are taking the ST 
seriously. In fact some IS 
new releases didn't find 
their way into the review 
section this month through 
sheer lack of space! 

To mark C VG's first ST 
pull-out, we sent David 
Bishop, our regular ST 
games reviewer, along to 
Atari house for an informal 
cliat with Bob Katz and 
Roland Whitehouse who 
between them are 
responsible for software 
acquistton, development, 
and marketing support. 

One of the first ihings^ tfiat 
ati fun-loving ST owners 
wilt be dying to know is 
when they'f! be sble to get 
their s we^ty hands on the 
likes ot Star Raiders and 
Joust, not to rrtenttoti 
A tori's other arcude titles? 



RW — "You won't have 
to wait much longer. In fact 
I can tell you that we're 
planning a three phase 
release covering seven 
titles. Phase one sees the 
release of a vastly 
upgraded version of 
Neochrome, together with 
Joust and Star Raiders 
which should t>c available 
now. 

"Ptiase two will include 
Battlezone and Crystal 
Castfes, and Robotron and 
Mittepede will appear in 
phase three," 

Wftjf other software 
reteases can we expect to 
see for A iari this year? 

BK — "We hope to be 
launching a range ot UK 
sourced software at the 
PCW show. These titles 
will be for both 8 and 16 btl 
machines and even the 
VCS games consie. 

So does this mean that 
you're resurrecting 
Atarisoft? 

BK — "Oh very much so. 
We're concentrating on 
sourcing and developing 
titles for all Atari 
machines. In the past, 
potential programmers, or 
game designers may have 
been put off from coming 
direct to a hardware 
manufacturer for fear their 
title might get lost or 
forgotten amongst so 
many other hardware or 
software launches, 

"We want to dispell this 
fear and would actively 
encourage software 
developers to come and 
talk to us." 

Apart from sourcing your 
own projects, what are you 
doing to encourage the 
development of third party 
software? 



RW — "We keep in close 
touch with almost every 
software house that's 
actively producing Atari 
product. We may be able to 
help them with extra 
technical documentation, 
Of early viewing or 
acquisition of new 
hardware, and we can 
certainly keep them bang 
up to date with our future 
plans. 

"We can help by giving 
them a stage from which 
they can show their titles 
to the public, hence the 
arcade area at the recent 
Atari show where we 
booked some space purely 
to let third party 
developers show off their 
wares." 

Do you see Atari getting 

into cooperative marketing 
and join t promoiion s ? 

BK — "Apart from 
looking at bundling leaflets 
Of even software with new 
hardware releases, we are 
also launching an Ad 
campaign showing an ST 
togetlier with a number of 
screen shots of third parity 
software," 

When can we expect to 
see the Mitter, and what 
types of software wilt it 
speedup? 

BK — "Wherever a 
program uses 'line A' 
instructions, that's those 
involved with the 
movement of graphics 
primitives, gem windows 
etc. It's important to 
remember that many 
games aren't written in a 
Gem environment and 
these will not be affected 
bytheblitter." 

When will the twitter be 



available? 

"Sometime in the 
summer," 

There have been few 
compa tibitity problems 
between the various $T 
models due to minor 
internal differences* Have 
these tjeen sorted out? 
RW — "We ha ve set up a 
test department here, to 
pick up anything like that 
long before it hits the 
streets. We are asking all 
developers ot ST titles to 
send us two copies of 
everything they release. 
One copy goes into our 
demo library, where it 
stays- Library copies aren't 
even loaned oiit to 
employees, in fact they 
don't move from that 
room. 

"The second copy goes 
to our test area, where it is 
tried out on every 
conceivable ST 
con figua ration to check it 
performs correctly on 
each. Obviously the 
quicker we can get hold of 
third party titles, the 
tietter. 

We've beard alot about 
the new Mega STs. What 
are the main differences 
fromibe 520 1040s? 

BK — "Interestingly 
enough, many of the 
changes made for the 
Affega's area as a direct 
result of comments and 
C)uestions from users- 
Thtngs like the battery 
clock, the new position of 
the jockstick ports (at the 
back }, and the detachable 
keyboard, alt Cante atuut 
this way. Of course the 
Blitter will be fitted as 
standard in the new 
machines. You will be able 
to switch it in Or Out from 
desktop."

The concept and design 0! Tlie 
Living Day fights is by Oomark's 
Richard Naylor. All the pragram- 
mir^g learns — including the 
team on the arcade version — 
are all working from his game 
plan. In theory this means that 
all the versions should n^ore or 
less be the same. 

Richard believes it is probatily 
the first time an arcade game 
and computer game have been 
designed at the same time. 

Says Richard: "The Amer- 
icans were going to design the 
game lor us Wtiat they came up 
with was something we did in A 
Vifw to a Kill. Iliree gimes in 
one. Nobody throughl thai wets a 
goad idea. ' 

He leets that one of the prob- 
lems ot games based on films or 






television shows Is that lattwaro 
houses lake the licence and try 
and get a game to lit it. He set 
about it the other way round. "I 
thought i would do a game and 
then tie it into Ihe film, in a Bond 
tiim there's bounif to be plenty ot 
shooting, I came up with llie 
idea of a man walking along, 
shooting in Iront of a scrolling 
background, it was then a matter 
0I tying iJie background and 
characters liom the film to the 
game," In this way whatever 
else happens, Richard hopes the 
end product will be a highly 
playable and enjoyalile game. 
So what type to game is ntie 
Living Dayfighfs?" It's deliniteiy 
a shoot em up." says Richan!, 
"with a tiny bit ol stratetn' in 
picking Ihe right weapon for 
Bond to use."

The menficinf; inhuman Sentinel has been 
having thingii his own way for too long! Thars 
why 0+ VG's crack IDEAS Central squad went 
on the offenftive lo bring you this exclusive 
play«rs guide. With Jackjson T. KalUber's right- 
hand man David Bishop in command^ C ■* VG 
took on the Sentinel and escaped almost 
unscathed! 



One of the finit

A viator written by Geoff 
Crammond. Ge(rfrthen went 
on to produce Rrvs 

Initially for the Beeb and 
C64 , Sentmei haa that Tsee 
quality of being totally 
oiiginol, and wan recently 
voted Most Original Game of 
1986 at Ch- VG's very own 
Golden Joystick a warda. 
Now avaiLable for the 
Anatrad lind Spectunn the 
game dnds you as a robot 
intent aa workup ywMr way 
through the 10,000 
landfl^pes whkh make up 
the world of the Sentinet. 

Bach landjjcape consists of 
iDQuntJiinfi, valleys and 
plateaux The plateaux are 
made up of squareii, rather 
like vast, open-plan eheec 
boarda. By lifting the 
keyboard only contfols, you 
can Bwivel round and look in 
any direction. You can a tfio 
pan up or down. 

To defpfit the Sentinet in 
each landscape, you muat 
abHorb its energy. 'Htia ia 
dooe by working your way 
up to a vantage point, from 
which you can see down onto 
the «iuare the Sentinel b

you alwaya begin at one of 
the !owe«t pointa in the 
landScapa, nonnally with the 



Sentinel towering high 
above you. What ia the lecnt 
toauctxae in this highly 
original game? 

After weeks of painatakin^ 
reeearch, C+VG'a have cotm* 
up with, what we believe to 
be. the definitive players 
guide to 5firi/jnt'/. 
# Before entering a 
landscape for the first time, 
always examine the map 
carefully and try to work out 
where you might materialise 
at the atart of the game. If 
you've tried this level before 
and failed, see if you

activate the Sentinel and 
aentries who will start to 



reoogniae any feature* which rotate and aean 



may give you a clue as to the 
itart powition. You will 
normally start in one of the 
bwest |K»nta ofthe 
bndtcape. (owardi the front 
ofthe map — bottom ofthe 
acreen. 

# If you've identiRed your 
rttart poaition on the map, 
make a mental note of the 
relative poaitiona ofthe 
Sentinel and any sentriee. If 
you're still having problenis 
hen make a quick sketch 
showing your position 
relative to the little horroni. 

# Once you've entered a 
landscape, take time to have 
a good look round, and work 
out your fhvt few movei in 
advance. Abo look at the 
laces of the Sentinel and 
sentriea — is one already 
looking at you or about to 
face you if it turns thia way? 

# Don't do a u-tum while 
you're still suaain^; out the 



If stuck in a particularly 
tricky landscape, try 
atarting the game - — by 
doing TWO aucceasive U- 
tums — while looking up at 
the Sentinel and his aentries. 
Note which way they start 
rotating when the game 
begins- Mark this 
information down on apiece 
of paper if nocessaiy. This 
■bcnild help you to mrmulate 
a plan as to which dirertiun 
to go in order to avoid being 
scanned too many times 
esriy in the game. 
• In some landscapes tht> 
key to success is patience 
Don't be in a hurry to create 
a boulder and hop onto it. 
You may havt> raised 
y ourae I f u p mto a sen^'s 
line of aight, which could be 
fatal if it's already fscmg 
you Rememl- 'twer 

yourpottitiori 
landscape, the safer you are. 



protected by mountains etc. 
Use this to your advantage 
and keep your head down 
until the danger has paseed. 
Then , when you hear the 
Sentinel rotate away . make 
a dash for it! 

# In BOtne landacapet;, the 
only way to succeed may be 
to hypcrspacse early on. If 
you're having difficulty 
getting anywhere at the 
atart of a tandacape then try 
hyperspacing. Remember, 
though, this uses up three 
unita r' "— ~y and you can't 
assun. Und any trees 
to absorb wlicn you get to the 
other end. So make sure you 
leave yourselfenough 
energy to teleport away from 
your hypenpaoB destinatjon. 
Youll aiffiost always need to 
create a boulder or two, as 
well as teleport once.youVe 
hyperspaoed somewhere. 

• In most eases, reaiat the 
temptation to create too 
many boulders on top of each 
other on the aameaquare. 
This is a dangerous ploy as 






youVe tyina up too naucfa of 
your energy moureeA on ofM 
squnre. Ttits leaves you 
fewer options for the tiext 
nwve. A!«o. ifyou get 
scanned:, youll have Le» 
Lime to react rationAlly 
before all your energy has 
been sapped, not to mention 
the fact that the Sentinel 
wilt have a field day 
■boortui^ and re> 
dittributiing half the energy 
you've JusI fl|>ent agea 
colieeting. 

Finally, ifyou. teteport 
onto the top of a larse stack 
ofbouLdeiv, especiAlly one 
that is close to your present 
poaitiaiM youl] use up 
pTediouK ftGconds paiuiing 
down until you arc tooking 
down on the square from 
whence you came in order tu 
re-afa«ort> your old robot. 
Whenever poastbie. avoid 
tel^mrting distances of less 
than ten sctuares. The 
furthrr you teleport the 
(quicker you'll be able to re- 
aheiorb your old rohoMnd 



any bouldeni he may have 
been standing on. 
• Always be careful, whan 
te]et»rting, that you can 
look back and re-absorb the 
energy frcnn your laA robot. 
If, for example, you teleport 
bo a lower square, you won't 
be able to look down on the 
oquare you juat came &om as 
it would now be above you. 
Thi£ IS particulariy critical 
when teleporting from a 
robot BtaiMliag ditecHy on a 
square, but is not such a 
prolilem i f your last robot 
was on a boulder as it seta aa 
an exteiurioD lo the square 
for absorption purpotws — 
providing you can look back 
ai the bouJder Uiat is* 

The other circumstances 
under which you may not 
have a clear view back, is 
when teleporting long 
distances where a mountain 
m^ get in the way. You may 
well M able to see the top of 
your robot, but its base may 
be hidden behind the slicing 
aide oTa mountain. 



• Ifyou place a boulder on a 
square that is airasdy being 
scanned by the Sentinel or a 
sentry, it will almost 
tmniediately be turned into a 
tree. Very often you will 
twar the sentry rotate alter 
it has absorbed the boulder. 
This may mean that you can 
now beleport to the square 
with relative safety as the 
sentry will now have to 
rotate by almost 360 defivai 
before tit can nam that 
aquare again. 

Of Gourae, whea you're up 
against a number of sraitTMS, 
the only way of being sure 
that one of the others iant 
now scanning the square, is 
to absorb the tree that was 
left and create another 
boulder in its place. It takes 
the Sentinel, or a sentry, 
twelve roovfffi to make a 
complete rota tion, so use you 
ears! 

• NEVER absorb the 
Sentinel until you have 
despatched all the scntrieii. 
You will tHvt he ahk to ah«»fb 



any more energv' — 
including SentrieA ^ once 
you've abeorbed the 
Sentinel. 

# Once you've got rid of al 1 
the ssjatries, don't he in too 
much of a rush to rmish off 
the Sentinel, You wilt gain 
far more by scanning the 
lamfecape looking for trees to 
ab.iorb. Reroeinbn', once you 
fi naliy absorb the Sentinel 
and hyperspace out of the 
landscape, you will be taken 
to another landscape whose 
number is equivalent to the 
last one, ptua the energy you 
had when you hyperspaced. 
Th(i higher your energy level 
the more landscapes you can 
skip and, who knows, you 
may even see landscape 
number 1 0,000 this decade! 

Don't forget, when the 
Sentinel saps your energy, it 
creates trees rsndc>mly over 
the landscape- So, when 
searching for tfee» yoQ 
might have mi«ted, lake th<> 
time to 8cour areas that 
previousily had none.- 

# To help you have enough 
time to flit around picking 
up stray trees before 
polifihing off thi? Sentinel, it 
19 vital that you know its 
relative position and 
direction oTrotatatiott. 
Armed with this informatton 
you can adopt a strategy of 
operating in mat that have 
alwa^ jiut be^ scanned , 

# Although nobody can b© 
sture. tt Its unlikely that any 
of the 10,000 landscapes in 
the Sentinel are impossible 
to finish. 

If all else faib. go back to 
the previous landscape you 
completed and play it again. 
The chances are you'l 1 fi ni»h 
it with a difrerent energ>- 
levol next time so you can 
neatly side-st^ any level 
you c«n't do

Of course. It would not be

language, and writing a 
program in it (and this has 
the advantages of machine 
code speed f it DOES require 
careful study of the iwo 
manuals provided. 

The first manual is an 
introduction to writing 
adventures with the utility, 
and runs into 66 pages. But 
more important is the 72- 
page technical guide, which 
details all the commands 
available from the utility. 
This is a professional' 
style manual for a 
professional piece of 
software, and requires a 
famil iarily with computing 
and soma of its terms. It is 
not for the computer- 
Illiterate. 

PAW wiW produce 
adventures with full 
sentence input, including 
speech to other characters 
in the game. Objects are 
individually weighted, and 
can be containers for other 
objects. 
n top of 1 h at. the re is a 



built-in RAM SAVE/LOAD 
factUty, the ability to create 
real- time adventures, a 
powerful graphics editor, 
and text compression , 

Don't buy PA IV and thir^k 
you will come up with 
instant results — it requires 
a lot of study and practice to 
make good use of many of 
the wide range of facilities it 
offers I don't think that PAW 
will suffer the problems of 
OtJii7^ in the plethora of 
cheap rubbishy adventures 
thai began to get it a bad 
name- 

We will not really 
appreciate its ful I power and 
value, until commercial 
adventures created with it 
have started appearing. For 
it strikes me that it is the 
likes of Fergus McNeil, St. 
Bride's School, Rod Pike, 
and anyone seriously 
interested in writing a really 
worthwhile adventure, for 
whom PAW IS intended,

9 McKensiecBms in for my 
exceptional vitriol because 
of a general lack of care in 
its writing. For eicample, a 
location which would be 
frequently visited is 
incomprehensible, 

I do not apologise for 
bringing faults in logic and 
spelling to general notice. 
Too many adventures are 
published with easily 
correctible faults. That they 
appear suggests a lack of 



concern by the software 
house for the pubitc^ who 

desefve bener. 

I care for, and enjoy 
Adventuring, and wiU do 
everything that I can to 
improve standards. I hope 
this is the aim of all 
adventurers, and that they 
will join me in campaigning 
for what is their right.

• I must congratulate you 
on your review of K^yfetK 
Brilliant you said, and 
brilliant it is! Its real winning 
point is that all the puzzles in 
the game are solved by 
plain logical thinking. 

Which leads me to the 
main subject of this letter: 
playability, There is a 
tendency now for 
programmers to produce 
puzzles that can only be 
solved by the "stand on left 
leg eating ham on rye with 
the right hand and reading 
/Vfem Kemp/ with 
sunglasses" approach. This 
apparently produces 'a 
game to stretch your mind 
to the limits, Illogical 
thmktng doesn't make a 
game brilliant — Ksyfeth is 
hard but I'm slowly solving 
it by LOGICAL thinking. 

Lastly, a tip of my own> 
Shop around! I found 
Kayieth at the amazing price 
of £2. 99. I've just bought

I east doubt on whether the

see any sign of Tiw fmafe?' 

And t gave it a value raijng

The gan^e IS supposed to 
combine arcadei and adveniurt

reactions are not needed as Eha 
only arcade clement is the use 
of a joystick lo move Gonch 
through ihc sohool 

Obj&cts can be packed up, 
dropped or used just as in an 
Ordinary advQfiturt- Some Of 
their uses are not immediataiv 
Obvtous- For eitample, the 
paper plane is used to get 
matches on the high wall- 
Various characters from the 
series also put m an 
apfwirance, usually as a 
hindrance, These include 
Imeida, Mr Griffiths, tho 
Caretaker, and a drug pusher. 
When you try and talk to the 
pusher the program makes a 
feeble attempt at speech, if any 
one knows what he seys, send 
mti a posicard- 

I now ha ve a shock for all you 
feliow Commodore 64 owners, 
Th e g ra ph ics a re infenor to the 
Speccy versioni This is not so 
much an accolade for the 
Spectrum as criticism of the 
Commodore v«r«ion- 

The sound won't give Rob 
Hubbard many sleepless nights, 
either. Fans of the senes wilt 
tmmeOiatoly recognise ihai the 
Tune is NOT the theme of the 
series. 

The biggest problem with ihe 
■*^ though IS not the 
;■ jihics, sound Of oven the lack 
of a game save option — it's the 
amount of bugs m the program, 
i[ makes the Commodore 
Gsuntles seem bug-free in 
comparison. They range from 
Ihe classic system crash to the 
more innovative watking on air 
jjnd disappearing, to spelling 
mtstakes and bad grammar- 
Vou'd ihink a game atxiut a 
school would at least have 
correct speihng. 

Gtsrtge H^tl had a lot of 
potential for becoming a good 
ijame but as an adventure it 
doesn't work. The text which 
appears on some of the 
iocatio ns ca n tj© qti ite a m us i ng, 
which proves an old-fashioned 
adventure game would have 
been more suitable. 

The bugs and a tack of a save 
option are unforgivable these 
days.

Hey you! Look hear. Gimme some 
attention. NOW! Big Red here again 
and I'm in a mean mood so don't tiiink 
your moans, complaints or whinges 
wHI get any sympathy from me. I've a 
compEaint of my own — rust. 



• Ever Since your Novembw 
issue I hawe been v^ofidenng, 
atxiyl ma><ing tha Alief> ma$k, dut 
neither got round to it. ITien agam I 
am not very good al iKsl kind ot

for sale, if so tiow much would 
Ihfly be?

eommissionfi'd. Ii cost around 
£250. Enough la make you sit 
down suddenly, eh? Which I 
did. On the mask. Us rtol very 
weif now. 

• This IS the lirsi lime I have 
wntl^rt to your maQSZine so i Jnope 
Ihat you wi 1 1 lole rale \ he fact thai 
rfiosi of what I want (o say has 
ifttie 10 do With computers 

First of all. wfiert will someone 
create a compuier ganne where

you re rea% tn Ihe scenano 

EHte IS. one game lhat gives you 
ihe leelir^ that you re really ihi

Ihe ground ol another pianei. 
ep^lenng buildings, entering and 
1 lying spaceships, and doing all 
the son ol things ifiat you d dream 
0I doing H you were on another 
pJar^ei. Mefcernry when u 1$ 

avatlabte for the Amslrad sounds 
very promising, bill wtien you afe 
outside a spaceship, you are 
appaiertily not armed wiin a hand 
blaster. Expioret. which has |ust 
COn^e in. SOUf\4% like jufil Ihe thrxg, 
OKCapt thai the reviewef s are 
unervihusiastic t myseii am not 
inieresled m this game. 1I you 
have 10 wait for the graphics lo 
tiuild up every hrrhe you turn 
round. A lar^e scale vefsion, le 
SwonrfS n ' Socery, wouEO be 
welcome, 1 think, Chofo pfooably 
rnakes up lor the Ltiings missing in 



M&fcetiBfy. bul you are not you m 
the game, but a controller ol a 

robo! Which brings me to ihe 
things I wani to say 

II the home computer can't he*p 
you bring alt your dreams come 
true, Ihen why no! sorneofle 
create n Ijvo game ol your 
dreams, t am lalktrKf about Five 
adventure games, or lile role

create ii Iwe $ciervce tiction

So, the people of Labynnthe, 
arvd 10 anyone else with lots of 
money, will someone please 
creel e a live scierK» fkztior

• Game graphics are Improving 
a^l the time. Check out some ol 
Ihe Atari ST and Amiga 
«tfv*ntiiree. S««rng is believing. 
As for live role playing g$^mes, 
they are becoming Increasingly 
popular. The high tech style 
games you Hke are hugely 
expensive to set up. Remember 
the feature we did a couple of 
years bnck on Planet Photon 4n 
America? That's the type Ol 
game you'd love-

Believe it or not, it*8 been around 18 tnonthft since word of System 
3's The Lasf Ninja was first heard. Now, at last, the Com mod ore 64 
version of the game is due out in the Bhops in May. As you can see 
it*s another martial arts extravaganza but, hope System 3, one with 
something extra to make it stand out from its many rivals. 

The added ingredient thisi time ii» that the Ninja must explore 
complex mazes, searching, for food, weapons, visiting shrines for 
guidance as to which objects must be collected to complete the 
level. These will Include various items such as a flower, glove. And 
all the time there are the Ninja warriors to do battle with plus extra 
hazards Ruch as fire -breathing dragons and tricky swamps. The 
ultimate aim in for the Ninja to find the secret scrolls of the Ninja 
which are hidden in a palace. 

The Last Ninja will be a multi-load game because of its si^e. The 
first four levels have 25 screens each and the last two levels 15 
screens each. The movement of the Ninja is really impressive as are 
the exotic backgrounds. It may be an unfair comparison but it 
looks like The Last Ninja could be the game Fist 11 should have 
been. They both combine fight action with exploration* Early si^a 
are that Ninja should be triumphant.

.. Jf you ane, Metrocross is the challenge that*s been 
designed to inspire you, if you're not then you'd better 
^8t tmpmve your skill and co-ordination. A chequered 
floor riddled with pitholes, a barrage of obstacles 
that hinder your progress and no go areas that 
brfng you to a standstill make this race against 
time increasingly impossible. But not everything 
is against you. Springboards are primed to 
cataputt you forward and a speeding 
skateboard waits ready to hurtle you 
along that desperate rush to the 
finish line. 

If you beat the clock the first 
time there's no guarantee 
' you'll not be flattened at 
the next level.
